Watch this blog entry to follow a start to finish build on this 2006 Chevy Corvette C6 automatic donor car. When we are finished with this Vette, it will be a fully functional, run and drive go kart which will be the perfect chassis for all sorts of custom builds.
This particular car features an LS2 engine with automatic transmission, black leather interior, complete brake system, fuel system, suspensions and much more. When we build one of our donor cars or “go-karts” we strip away all of the clutter, leaving only the essentials for your build.
Here are some pictures showing what the car looked liked when we received it here in our facility.
We started this build, like we do with nearly all of our Vette donors, by racking it on a lift to see what, if any suspension components need replaced. We spin wheels, check control arms, etc to verify that every part that will be going back on the vehicle is true and straight. If any part needs replaced, we obtain it from our back stock inventory of Corvette parts.
Once we have an inventory on what needs replaced or repaired, we start by removing the body panels. Here are some photos of the Corvette after the first stages of tear-down.
At this point, we inspect the engine and driveline to verify that everything is in good working order. We will also begin to inspect the interior components, power functions.
Please stay tuned to this blog to see the second part of this build, and the conclusion in which wee will offer the completed donor Vette for sale.
If you have any questions on this vehicle, or any of the vehicles we have, please give us a call at 866-236-5031 to discuss.
